Sandbox Play Area and Marble Machine

In this video I will walk you through how I built this sandbox play area in the small area in our backyard. it features a standing sandbox with storage and a marble machine.

The plans and cut list will be available soon. 
The materials can be found in most home centers. and can be built in a with a few basic tools.
You can use a small 4 1/2-inch circular saw. with a speed square for most of the cuts. I will have a video showing how to make cuts with this saw for this project.
a tape measure for obvious reasons.
a drill and a variety of bits.
pocket hole jig is not necessary, but it helps.
building the maze portion, you will need a level especially if the ground is uneven
a jigsaw with a scrolling blade, an acrylic cutting blade and metal cutting blade or a hacksaw for the aluminum rods
a step bit is usually known for drilling metal, but I found that it works well for acrylic sheets
hammer and nails, and exterior screws
a heavy-duty staple gun and staples are optional as well
I built this play area before I decided to put videos up online but after I saw how much my son loved it. I decided to make a video about it, and I created this 3d model so I can show you how it was done.
